Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

ROTFL. I had a good chuckle reading that.

We want to make it fast, easy and painless to develop applications for Ubuntu...

Well done. Desktops that want to get anywhere need to grab developers and help them produce applications with real functionality. It's a little late to save Ubuntu and Canonical, but what the hell?

He also draws parallels between Qt and their objectives - Arm and multi-architecture support as well as cross-platform support.

He's going to go straight to hell for being so pragmatic and we'll never hear from him again!
